My educational philosophy is believing that each student is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating environment in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my passion as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an atmosphere that is safe, supportive, and promotes the sharing of ideas. These three elements are as follows: (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the student's natural curiosity to direct his or her own learning experience, and (3) promoting respect for all things and all people. Helping others is my passion!
